We’ve Gone and Done It
We were going to wait until July, but it’s 106. What else are we going to do? We started school. We take off Thursday and Friday so Saturday’s a school day for us. And what a day. We don’t have central air, but we still felt it when the power and water went off today. The power was off twice today, the second time for a couple of hours. The water is still off.
The first thing each kid had to do (except the preschooler) was a following directions worksheet. I explain that it’s important to read all of the directions before they click on their links for school and that they need to follow all of the directions. Some of the grades have real follow direction practice worksheets, like my second grader here. Some had those trick worksheets that say to read through all the directions before starting and then the last direction is to not do the worksheet. My daughter did the whole thing. Lesson learned.
The first day was pretty easy stuff, and we finished quickly. The only sticking point was my fifth grader and poetry. I don’t like poetry myself and always put our month of poetry first to get it over with. My son is sure he cannot write poems. But with the heat on and the power out for a couple of hours there was nothing else to do. So he got it done. Little by little. Only 19 more days of poetry to go.
Today we just did some background to early history and science. Tomorrow we begin ancient Egypt and the human body. Hope you are staying cool. (Made with Scratch which is part of 4th grade in the Easy Peasy Homeschool)
My daughter just came in to say the water is back on. Now I can wash the dishes. Yeah!
